Rebecca Murphy

Sydney, AU

To have your work displayed in Times Square would be any artists dream come true but it has happened to Rebecca in 2012 when digital billboards sung her images to the world.

Just like the inside scoop in a news story, Rebecca’s work peels back the skin of her subjects and allows the observer to literally crawl inside her subjects embodiment. Like a lesson in biology muscle tissue and internal workings are exposed to reveal uncommon truths of familiar stories both old and new.

Her style is akin to East Asian tissue frescoes and the narratives she exposes will offend as it questions what you thought you knew about the world around you, and there lies the reason her work has been awarded around the world. Her ability to present and challenge what has been right in front of us all along.
